Volunteers Welcome at National Public Lands Day Event at Clear Creek



Volunteers are needed to lend a hand in cleaning up the Lower Clear Creek Greenway area south of Redding, in a National Public Lands Day project Saturday, Oct. 9.  Work gets underway at 9 a.m. and concludes at 2 p.m.  A barbecue will conclude the day.

Volunteers will pick up trash, clean up graffiti, repair hiking trails and clear invasive weeds.  The BLM will provide gloves, eye protection and tools.

Anyone interested should call the Bureau of Land Management Redding Field Office, (530) 224-2100 or the Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve (530) 241-2026 to sign up. 

To get to the work site from Redding, take Highway 273 south to Clear Creek Road, and then follow Clear Creek Road for about seven miles to the HCCP parking area (marked by an orange pipe gate).

The event is sponsored by the Bureau of Land Management, Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve and Western Shasta Resource Conservation District. 

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single day volunteer event focused on improving public lands.  Last year, 150,000 volunteers built trails, cleaned up trash, cleared weeds and improved watersheds on sites across the country.
